Here is my situation. I am a Belgian national and I will be working in South Africa for 2 years on a 24 month general work permit. I will be starting in November 2016 and finishing by the end of October 2018. This means my general working permit will also expire in October 2018.
I know it's planning far ahead in time but I'd like to stay around for another 3 months or so more after having finished my two year contract to travel around the country and some neighbouring countries during summer till the end of January 2019.
If I'd leave South Africa before the end of October 2018 (while still on my 24 month work permit) and travel around Zimbabwe/Botswana/Nambia for a couple of weeks and come back to SA in let's say, mid December 2018 (after my work permit got expired), will I be granted a 90-day visa-free stay like most EU citizens travelling to South Africa?
Hope someone will be able to answer my question!
